A Contemplative Men’s Group is offered  to support men in their spiritual journey and meditation practices. Using  a format for group spiritual direction, each session will provide periods of silence followed by opportunity for participants to share insights and questions about their spiritual journey.  This practice  encourages deep listening to one another and the spiritual wisdom that emerges. The group is designed to  offer fellowship and guidance for men seeking contemplative practice. Each session will last approximately ninety minutes.


The group will meet on the second Thursday of each month from 7- 8:30 pm.  


The group will be facilitated by Karl Ruttan, an Episcopal priest, teacher, and spiritual director  with experience in men's work and retreat leadership.  He  received his doctorate at Duquesne University in spiritual formation.
